Welcome to 7th Grade Science!
I am very excited to be a part of the Thunder Vista Middle School team. I recently relocated from St. Johns, Florida where I taught 6th, 7th and 8th grade science. This fall will begin my 4th year teaching middle school science.
As far as education, I received a BA in Spanish with a minor in Biology and Chemistry from the University of Arizona, a BS in Anatomy and a Doctor of Chiropractic from Parker University. I was in private practice in Arizona for almost 18 years before relocating to Florida. In 2017, I decided to change my career and follow my second passion, education when I received my teaching certificate from the University of North Florida. I am passionate about education and engaging students to explore the world around them, think critically and apply science to real world situations.
When I am not working, I love to spend time with my husband and two daughters, Julia and Savannah and our three fur babies, Bella, Lacy and Sugar. I also love to read, hike, bike, travel and spend time with family and friends.
I cannot wait to meet you and I look forward to working with each and every one of you this year!
